ICAT Statement on State University Press Publications and Maintenance Projects

According to instructions under the 008/28 in the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data, “items published by university presses are considered government publications if the presses are created or controlled by a government (e.g., state university presses in the United States).” For more information.

Correcting “the 653 problem” how to search for it, recognize it from a printout, and correct it

NOTE:  This does not apply to institutions that migrated to I-Share Voyager in 2003 or after.  This also does not apply to those I-Share Voyager libraries that did not use the bibliographic master records converted from DRA (e.g. UIC, SIUM, IIT).  However, any I-Share Voyager library that copies records from the I-Share Universal Catalog may have inadvertently copied records containing these 653 fields into their catalog.

I-SHARE Fines and Fine Notice Policy

Waiving Fines

I-SHARE library staff will waive any fine owed, with the exception of fines/fees for lost items, by another institution’s patron up to the amount of $4.99 per item. This policy is intended to prevent borrowers from being blocked due to small billing amounts and to prevent libraries from sending bills for small charges.

Notice Generation

I-SHARE libraries will set a $5.00 minimum balance on notices for fineable Universal Borrowing patron types.

Standards for Bibliographic Records in I-Share

Introduction

Libraries using OCLC for cataloging realize many savings in time and effort due to the shared database. Indeed, it is this facility to use other libraries' cataloging that makes OCLC so attractive. But shared bibliographic records are useful only to the extent that they are usable by others. For this reason, standards are in place to guarantee that these records will have maximum utility.

CARLI Privacy Policy

CARLI takes the collection of personally identifiable information required to provide library services very seriously. It is our policy to store personal information in our systems for the shortest amount of time necessary to complete transactions or provide service. Access to personal information is restricted to the library and consortium staff needing such access to conduct library business. Personal information is never made available for commercial purposes and will not be revealed to any third party except by such process, order, or subpoena as authorized by law.
